Flamingo Fashion Fever!

So flamingos are “my thing” – as slightly hinted from the name of my blog…

They’re pink and I admire their balance, and sometimes I secretly like to think I’m an undercover flamingo parading around with slender legs (wishful thinking) wearing a fabulous pink outfit in some gorgeous turquoise blue paradise.

Winter’s wrapped up

ZaraYou can never have too many coats, and a good quality one is always a worthwhile investment – well, so I tell my credit card anyway…

For my annual Winter coat purchase, this year I’ve decided on this cream wool coat with pockets and an uber-soft fur lapel – £89.99 from Zara.

A classic yet slightly over-sized shape, and a suitable length to hide my bum and thigh-tops (phew!). Many of my coats nip in at my waist or are dark or bright in colour, but I wanted to try something different this year, and sometimes change is good…

I just need to make sure I avoid any coloured food, drink, paint, or any other liquids whilst wearing this coat! With the fun festive season soon approaching it will be interesting to see how I get on with that….. 😉


Taking the ultimo plunge

Bec Mone – founder Michelle’s daughter

If you’re anything like me and have a bust, you’ll agree how reassuring it is that the undies market is increasingly recognising the need for well fitted, comfortable, sexy and attractive bras!

I’ve just bought myself a fuller bust plunge bra from Ultimo that’s seam free, shapes my bust rather nicely, gives excellent support and doesn’t compromise on one’s cleavage! 😉

Priced at £27, I’m very happy to report that Ultimo are not punishing us “fuller bust gals” for “having a handful” by upping their prices of this new DD-G range. Instead they are keeping the price of their new DD-G collection the same as their A-D range!

I would upload a photo of me modelling my new bra, but instead I’ll leave that to the job of Michelle Mone’s (Ultimo founder) gorgeous daughter Bec Mone. I wouldn’t want to hurt your eyes now… 😉


Denim on Denim at New York Fashion Week

Olivia Denim

Olivia P did denim good

As we witnessed with her recent bridal look, Olivia Palermo can wear ANYTHING and still look amazing – like she did yesterday at New York Fashion Week with her “Double Denim” look.

Simply styled and effortlessly chic, Olivia wore denim on denim – combining a Topshop chambray top tucked in to a denim skirt by Black Orchid – a duo costing not more than £100. I do love a celebrity that doesn’t always have to stick to designer labels that the likes of you and I simply can’t afford.

Olivia Palermo finished her look with her own brand shoes, Rebecca Minkoff bag and Bobby Roache sunglasses.
